It is becoming even more clear, one way or another, advisor to the owner Ed Stefanski will run the Pistons’ front office.

They hired a coach (Dwane Casey) before tabbing someone as president or general manager. Now, they’re even hiring an assistant general manager before giving someone the top title.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:

Rose – who played for the Hornets, Spurs, Knicks and Thunder in a 13-year career – is well-liked by most who know him. He could help the front office connect with Detroit’s players and continue to develop as an executive.

Expect the Pistons to hire a couple more assistant general managers… and formalize Stefanski’s place atop the front office.
